Who can apply to the iaab?
The exchange program is open to visual artists who live or work in the Region of Basel, South Baden or the Canton of Solothurn irrespective of their age and nationality.
Application procedure for artists from the region of Basel
The call for applications is being published each year in May for the following year. Announcements are published on the iaab website. Documentation can be obtained through downloads on this website or at the Christoph Merian Stiftung at the St. Alban-Vorstadt 5 in Basel.
A jury consisting of representatives of the iaab patrons and of people with first-hand knowledge of art (artists, gallery owners, curators) make their choice on the basis of the applications submitted. The selected artists receive a contribution to the living costs. The jury decides the amount of the contribution.
Application procedure for international artists
The studios in and around Basel are reserved for participants selected by our partner organisations abroad. Information about the participation conditions can be obtained from the organisations concerned.
